Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DS347 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched more than a year ago which have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to look at including the Acer X1285 (£300) which is also cheaper.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma DS347 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all projectors of a comparable age and spec to this projector.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the best resolution is 1080p (1920x1080).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of a comparable age and type to this multimedia projector is 300 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 5,400 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Optoma DS347 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer X113P (£259.99).

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the P1285 TCO (3,200 ANSI lumens), the X1278H (£378.97) (3,800 ANSI lumens), or the X1378WH (£406.97) (3,800 ANSI lumens) all from Acer.
